DR slave freeze

Postby toast » Thu Jun 27, 2013 6:50 am

Hi,

Using this scene:

drbatch.zip
(3.04 KiB) Downloaded 4623 times


It seems that when using a DR slave, the render just hangs indefinitely:

[2013/Jun/27|12:54:25] V-Ray: dr host: 192.168.139.145:20207

^ It just stays like that forever.

However, the DR slaves all work when I have no VRayPattern object enabled in my scene:

Another thing is that I have installed VRayPattern on my slave machines as "Batch Mode". Maya 2014x64 and nightly build as options in the installer.

I have installed the files to the same location as VRayScatter and VRayScatter works perfectly.

Hello bdancer,

I was wondering if there was a solution to this in the end? I hate to bump threads like this but unfortunately I still can't use V-Ray Pattern with DR slaves as it freezes for me. :cry:

Hi,

Unfortunately I get this error message when attempting to render now with the new build;

// Error: Error loading plugin library "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2014\vray\vrayplugins\vray_VRayPattern.dll" (127): The specified procedure could not be found. //

Just installed it using Maya 2014 and Nightly options - works fine. My nightly is 23364 from Aug 1 2013.

Fascinating, I try the August 1st build and it works perfectly! I was previously using June 8th build.

However VRayScatter does not like newer builds of V-Ray - there is a fatal error always upon rendering with the August 1st build.
